The U.S. Small Business Administration, in conjunction with the White House’s Presidential Innovation Fellows, recently launched a “beta” (pilot) version of RFP-EZ, a new online marketplace that streamlines the government contracting process, making it simpler for small businesses to find and bid on low-dollar contracts from federal agencies.
